Quotes for Friday from Benjamin Kwakye's The Clothes of Nakedness
Today's quotes come from a book I would be reviewing next week The Clothes of Nakedness by Benjamin Kwakye.
If people would spend thinking half the time they spend talking the world would be a better place. If people filtered their thoughts before they spoke, they would not come out with the rubbish we hear these days.
Kojo Ansah, Page 120
...blaming others may blind a man's eyes to his own faults.
Kofi Ntim, 123
...a man is sometimes blind to the thorns on the path he walks. His friends must provide the light to illuminate the path.
Kojo Ansah, 123
Our enemies are like eggs in our backyards. You see, they become powerful if we let them. You can allow an egg to hatch into a chick and watch it grow into an adult hen, strong and ready to peck your corn and defecate over your yard. Or you can prevent all that by dropping the egg on the floor.

Mystique Mysterious, 132
Rumours must have wings. Once a rumour starts, never mind how absurd it sounds, it has the ability to cover much ground in no time at all so long as it appeals to the imagination. And often you cannot tell who originates it.
Kojo Ansha, 134
